Happy Birthday to Phil!

WOD 11 12 12

A. In 40 minutes, use

[3 official attempts to establish a max Snatch

3 official attempts to establish a max Clean & Jerk]

*This WOD will run like an Olympic Weightlifting competition, where the weight on the bar will only increase.  (Set up 1 M and 1 W bar), with the last snatch occurring before the first C&J.  Lifters will get 2 minutes to follow themselves and 1 minute to follow someone else.  Olympic Weightlifting movement standards apply.  3 referees per lift if possible.

B. For time:

“Grace”: 30 C&J (135/95).  Movement standard is simply: GTO.

    You guys, for my birthday, don’t talk to Troy today. Don’t even look at him.
    I’m super pissed at him about fantasy football.

      Dear Diary: I just told all the girls at the gym to TOTALLY ignore Troy. Turns out he was the guy with the mullet, and I was the guy who got cupcaked! As if!!!

    Had a great day in the gym. Got a couple PA’s. Outlifted Troy.
    ————————————————————————————–
    Snatched 186 warming up (1lb PA) then:
    Snatched 185, 190, 190
    Clean & jerked 205, 225, 235
    ————————————————————————————–
    Grace: 5:35, Rx
    ————————————————————————————–
    So that’s a snatch PA, a jerk PA, a clean&jerk PA, a total PA, and a Grace PA (I think). Holla.

    Had a fun day with our Syndicate – highlighted by gratuitous bar slams by Ed and Pedro, great faces by Special Ed (the name of a future TV show?), and Eron making reckless 30 lb jumps on the C&J and still making the lifts like a boss. (or Bost?)

    Just another Monday!

      I got overriden a few times by the birthday boy on a few pressouts. The man was white-lighting everything in sight!

        I’m getting magnanimous in my old age, what can I say?

    Came in to this WOD looking to have a day like Phil did. But, alas, it was Phil’s birthday, and not mine.
    Got 65# on the snatch (5# PA) after the Oly Comp (when no one was watching). I’ve wanted to make a 75# snatch ever since the CF Games Open last Feb!
    Came SO CLOSE at 101# for the C&J. I am finally lifting a weight heavy enough where how I recover my feet from the split jerk matters. Lost the attempt when my weight went forward while I was trying to move my back foot too much.
    Grace was a little embarrasing at 8:22 with 65#.
